Ryan Academy

The DCU Ryan Academy incorporated a single storey administration building and two distinctive 18 metre high egg shaped titanium clad pods. The development contained two lecture theatres, reading and meeting areas, a seminar room, office space and a canteen.  The complexity of the pod structures was dictated by the steel shell which formed the basis for construction, first fix timber members were then bolted to the structural steel in both horizontal and vertical planes to which the titanium was then secured.
